Kyon: This is the story of Yuki Nagato, a normal and slightly shy girl. Original Creator: Nagaru Tanigawa. Original Illustrations: Noizi Ito. Manga Art: Puyo. Serialized manga, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. The world that Yuki Nagato changed and the fairly normal everyday life that happens there. Everything that happens there occurs with Yuki Nagato at the center. Will Yuki Nagato be able to convey her hidden feelings...? The spinoff work of the Haruhi Suzumiya series is finally being adapted into an anime after a few years of waiting.
The website also noted that Shin Araki's "four-panel novelization" Nagato Yuki-chan no Shōshitsu: Toaru Ichinichi (The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan: A Certain Day) will ship in one volume on April 1.
The original manga is Puyo's official spinoff based on Nagaru Tanigawa's Haruhi Suzumiya light novel series. Puyo serializes the ongoing manga in Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine, and also created The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan manga series which inspired an earlier anime. Yen Press publishes both manga in North America. Yen Press describes the story:
This spin-off of the Haruhi Suzumiya series takes place in the world of the "Disappearance" arc of the original novels, focusing on the high school life (and romance!) of a tentative and bashful Yuki Nagato quite unlike the one you've come to know and love through the usual exploits of the SOS Brigade... but no less charming!
